Four amateurs will play the weekend of the Emirates Australian Open, with national junior champion Ryan Ruffels among them.
Three of those who made the four-over-par cut are in the world’s top 11.
Australian Masters’ runner-up Bryson DeChambeau, world No.5, is tied 14th at even par, continuing his outstanding form.
Victorian world No.7 Ruffels sits at two over after a 74, while No.11 Jordan Niebrugge completed a superb comeback after being seven over through nine holes in round one to make the cut on the number.
First round bolter Yu Chan-An, of Taiwan, sits at two over after a 76.
Amateurs to miss the cut included Austin Bautista (+5 after a 74), Brett Coletta and Zach Murray (both at +6) and South Australian Matthew Lisk, who finished at 10 over after an 80.
